A new reality competition show debuted earlier this week called “The Ultimate Surfer” and will air on Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC at 10 p.m. ET.
ABC’s official description of the show: ‘The Ultimate Surfer’ will gather some of the world’s greatest up-and-coming surfers to train and live together as they battle it out at the World Surf League’s (WSL) state-of-the-art Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California, powered by Kelly Slater’s human-made wave technology, in the hope of competing amongst the best athletes in the world’s fastest-growing sport. Alliances and rivalries will be front and center in ‘The Ultimate Surfer’ as men and women compete in individual and team challenges focused on specific surfing disciplines. Weekly eliminations will leave two men and two women as finalists who will vie for the male and female titles of the The Ultimate Surfer and the opportunity to compete on the elite WSL Championship Tour, the pinnacle of professional surfing.
One of the show’s executive producers is UFC president Dana White. He and Slater, one of the greatest surfers of all time, have been frineds for many years. Slater has taught White’s sons how to surf and UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya recently surfed with Slater. The Surf Ranch has an impressive 700-foot man-made wave pool that simulates real surfing conditions. Hopefully we wont be seing any of these surfers competting at the UFC Apex in Dana White’s Contender Series or The Ultimate Fighter, or are we??
